The Cripple of Inishmaan
by Martin McDonagh
A strange comic tale by Ireland’s most celebrated young playwright, The Cripple of Inishmaan is set in 1934 on a remote island off the Irish Coast, where word comes that Hollywood director Robert Flaherty is arriving to film The Man of Aran. For young Cripple Billy, it’s the chance of a lifetime to escape the tedium of his tiny village and head for the bright lights of America. This irresistible tale is by turns eccentric, honest, and brilliantly funny. Contains strong language.
“McDonagh is a born story-teller…..a tough, boisterous, gifted play.” — The London Times
